      Why did you do the quiz if you were just going to guess? Did you go back over the quiz to learn WHY your 'guess' was the correct/incorrect answer? I am so surprised that someone would take a quiz without any interest in actually absorbing any new information, or to become more knowledgeable... but that's just me!

      The word twee pops up all the time in Brit novels, not so much in those set in the States.

    I was asked "what is a synonym of blunt" and I answered "blur". However, it says the answer is "stark". After the consultation of a dictionary and thesaurus, I understand that they were asking for a synonym of the word "blunt" when used as an adjective of a person or statement. However, I was technically not incorrect, since this was not specified in the question. Blunt has two meanings as an adjective: when talking about a person or statement "blunt" means "uncompromisingly forthright" which could be described in another manner as a "sharp" or "piercing" statement. However, when using the word "blunt" to describe a piece of metal or a knife, "blunt" means essentially the opposite -- "unsharp" or "dull". So, obviously, you can see, after further examination of the true meaning of the question, it is blatantly apparent that it is important to specify what the question is asking, whether it is referring to an object, or to a person or statement since the two uses of the word mean essentially the opposite. Please fix the stating of the question to specify this.

      but blur is a description (adjective) the way it would be similar to blunt and stark. And if something is blurred it is unclear unfocused or fuzzy in appearance visually or cognitively but never of an object. Blunt refers to dull, rounded or unsharpened objects. It is not unclear.

      Yes, meaning is fuzzy but to improve blurry vision you would need to “sharpen” the blurry picture to see, so it is an antonym the opposite of a sharp picture is a blurred one. Making it an incorrect answer.

    I think question #9 is a bit confusing. There's no answer that really makes sense. You're asking for a synonym for the word "subterranean", which means "existing, occurring, or done under the earth's surface" (Oxford Dictionaries). According to the quiz, the correct answer is "ulterior"...but the definition of that word is "existing beyond what is obvious or admitted; intentionally hidden". The most commonly used synonym for "subterranean" would be "underground".

      three of them are theistic and secular for all intents and purposes is the opposite of theism. At least that's the way I got the answer.

    Some words I have never come across before, but the challenge of the quiz shows there is some 'feeling', or rather faint association towards the correct answer. Very strange experience. (I am non-native speaker)

    8/10 and English is not my native language (I'm Portuguese)! And on the first one I didn't choose "mad" because it's an adjective and "fury" is a noun.

    OK, I gave it a second shot and this time, you’ve presented scanty and dearth as antonyms. Related terms perhaps, but they are completely different parts of speech (an adjective and a noun). You could choose much more appropriate antonyms and synonyms to improve these quizzes.

    Thin is not a synonym of curdled. To curdle means to separate and form lumps. Coagulate would be the correct synonym. Sober is not synonymous with besotted - to be besotted means to be infatuated or in love, or even drunk. Not convinced this has been properly checked.

      thanks for your feedback! We've revised the answers to better suited words. Note that particular question was about antonyms of words, not synonyms :)

      I had that question as well, but mine wasn’t a synonym question.. it was a, ‘which is an *antonym* for “curdled”’: the correct
      answer was “smooth”. Thin wasn’t even an option on mine, though. The “correct” answers for some of these questions are very strange — and I am a native speaker. LOL!

    One annoyance about the Synonyms quiz: it’s too big for the page, so at the start of every question, I need to scroll the page down and to the right to be able to see the question and answers. It looks as if you’re using fixed sizes insteada percentages. The latter’d be preferable, as it’s less user-hostile.

    (I’m set to request the desktop site on my iPad.)

    Thanks for considering it!

    (Thanks also for using text and background with good contrast and text size; these days, everyone seems to prefer low contrast (e.g., pale gray 7pt text on a gray background; argh! I can’t see it even with a magnifying glass!) I appreciate you making the effort so that EVERYONE can read it!

      Sorry if you get this reply twice...ambidextrous could relate to fallacious via 'two-faced'. A bit of a stretch, I agree
